“I can do all things through him who strengthens me”
Trees are going up and the halls are being decked…that can only mean one thing…it is, indeed, the most wonderful time of the year! Whether you are one of our daily readers or finding yourself here for the very first time, we welcome you to our Everyday Living! It won’t take very long before you see that I enjoy sharing a wide variety of topics…from gardening to decorating to travel, and always a new tablescape every week!
Christmas calls for family gatherings and dinner parties…the perfect time to set a beautiful table! It can be as elaborate or as simple as you want, but what will stick with your guests is the love they feel when they put their feet under your table. Today, we will take a look at a table I put together using what was readily available from right here in my garden and yard! At first glance it is a fun table, but I think you will agree that when the lights go down, it brings about a rustic ambiance that ushers in the season!
A special thank you to Chloe from Celebrate & Decorate for organizing this fabulous party! Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom to see the full line-up. I hope you will take the time to visit them all this week and get ideas for your Christmas tables! We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and send Plaid Tidings to you and yours!
As you can see, I’m all about the plaid with my placemats and tartan napkins!
The Better Homes and Gardens “Woody” salad plates were the inspiration for the tablescape. These are the first ones that I have collected and I am sure they will make their way onto my table many more times!
A cinnamon stick, a sprig of rosemary, and wrapped with twine…so simple and easy. Most of my tables involve special people and memories, like the silver-plate flatware that was a wedding gift from my parents many years ago (more years than I am willing to admit!).
The centerpiece is a wooden box that is holding fresh cedar with red and white pillar candles nestled inside.
